    Maggie Up-Date

    Troy - I don’t have firsthand experience with this woofer - I don’t see the DWM besting your SVS PB Ultra 2 - the module was originally intended for the Minis if memory serves - from various readings it seems to be helpful in the mid/upper range for some - I really do understand the objective...

    APC - 1500 VA H Type Line Conditioner

    Had a couple of short power outages in two days – no damage - years ago computer board was fried on two separate occasions by the silent killer aka voltage spike – bought a APC UPS for computer and that was the end of that nonsense. The APC -15 replaces the Tripplite Isobar Surge Suppressor...

    Negotiating Purchase for THEE Musical Subwoofer…

    If I seem to give the impression that subs output magically dropped to accommodate this particular address – this is not the case – but rather my lacking writing skills. When sub arrived the initial suggested K Ohm settings for the amp /speaker’s sensitivity levels produced the unwanted 4db...

    Hi Troy – my old friend who I visited multiples times with the dual Vandersteen’s and Maggie’s called me yesterday- inquiring about my progress – I invited him over last night for a session and asked him to bring some of his music – critique with his experience with the same equipment is...

    Negotiating Purchase for THEE Musical Subwoofer…

    Update: The 80 hour break-in is now complete - I’ve managed to tweak the controls where the sub is now a mere ½ dB louder than the Maggie’s – it’s been improving daily – when it arrived it was 4db louder than the speakers – that was unacceptable for a sub of this caliber – the integration is...

    Negotiating Purchase for THEE Musical Subwoofer…

    The collection is quite eclectic – ranging from classical to Madonna and everything in between – the wife at times will sit in with her collection – quite surprising at times – a recent example - I was sitting at computer and she started playing an unknown disc to me – from the first cut the...

    Vertical stripes are black ribbons – aesthetics purposes only – the hoses are pipe wraps – keeps cables from catching cold – while making me feel better.

    Hey Troy - I would never buy an older model Maggie – the delam failure rate is too high – if upgrade bug hits it would be for a newer model probably the 3.7 – never heard the Tympani – very few were restored.

    Hi Troy – Thanks for the invite – the real audiophile aficionados reside at the Asylum (I’m inquiring there) with a good number over at the Circle – I have a lot of respect for these guys on their convictions and the endless tweaking is what makes for a true audiophile – I enjoy this aspect of...

    The setup is a temporary one until the sub has the required 80 hours break-in – the place will continue to look in disarray all of next week – or until I put everything back on the rack - the amps are convection – they will get warm but not enough to warrant concern - here’s the deal on the...

    Break-In Began This Morning 50 hours per manual - 80 hours after speaking with Vandersteen this morning is his recommendation – after that you start playing with speaker sensitivity, Q, and amplifier impedance until you find a combination that pleases – after that you can send the values to...

    Negotiating Purchase for THEE Musical Subwoofer…

    After much serious research plus socializing with some pretty ugly hard core Audiophiles – my intentions were clear to all as to my pursuit of natural bass for two channel audio – these are not GTG events but rather one on one auditions of their systems after I was allowed in the home – I’m...

    New From SVS: The Legato Dual Cylinder

    Hsu has always been a disappointment in multiple connecting schemes department – true 'stereo' subs configuration will only shine on 2 channel playback after multiple tweaks over a period of time – mixing the HT with stereo only music is a compromise I understand – don’t anticipate the same...

    Get Better Sound by Jim Smith

    Back in March 2010 I paid $19.99 – at the time there was some sort of promotion that was discussed on one of the audio forms – doesn’t help I know.

    Get Better Sound by Jim Smith

    Review I own it and completely agree with the reviewers take – the subwoofer question here will surely ensue a debate and here’s why – he starts with – “a single sub kills acoustically recorded music” (nuff said) and goes on to explain how this has been proved to many skeptics - The author...

    Magnepan #1 among dealers

    Hi Troy... You might recall I attempted to repair some of the wires in the 1.6 due to ‘flapping bass’ in one speaker – I followed instructions as per Peter Gunn amongst others but to no avail – got in touch with Magnepan explained the dilemma and they immediately shipped the 1.6 carton for me to...
